    Was anyone else surprised that...

    ...Iowa didn't use McNutt more? He has got to be one of the most dangerous WR we will see all year.

    I think it is a tribute to our secondary and coaching, vandenburg looked his way all day, but we had him doubled quite a bit.

    I think it's more of a comment on our secondary than Iowa's choice to not involve him in the game.

    I actually thought the same thing. When Reeves was matched up with him, I was shocked he wasnt targeted more.

    They didn't use their tight ends much either.

    We double teamed him most of the day, and Vandenburg over or underthrew him when they did try to go his way.

    Our respect for McNutt is a big part of why they had a decent running game. Though Coker getting an extra 3 yards every time after we wrapped him up was also a big part of that.

    Re: Was anyone else surprised that...

    Not really, Iowa has never shown an ability to exploit a bad match up. Ferentz and co are great coaches Sunday-Fri but they have never shown the ability to adjust to another team on Saturdays. They come out with one game plan and if it doesn't work, well they lose.
